I need to know to route my dryer belt on my GE dbrl33ee2ww dryer as the belt slipped off and I did not see the correct path


Hi Roy, W/D here. I wrote this earlier for another person, but it works just as well twice.

You already have the diagram! (Bear with me).

Make sure that your power is off.


If you look carefully at the drum, you can see where the old belt was running.
Place your new belt in that position.
Now, place the belt over the motor pulley (It is in the same plane as the belt position on the dryer).
Pull the tensioning pulley past the belt, and ease it into place.
Roll the drum several revolutions by hand, just to get the belt tracking completely right.
Put it all back together and you're done!
Best regards, --W/D--

Kelvinator Dryer Belt Diagrams and Replacement


Your dryer belt has broken and you have a new belt to install, but you do not know how to route the belt properly. Here are some pictures or diagrams to help you see how the belt needs to go. Of course the belt needs to go around the drum so that is not included.
The important part is the routing around the motor and the tensioner pulley.

Trying to replace belt around drum. reached in under drum to put belt around both pulleys but the belt is not tight. any suggestions?


You need to ensure you have the belt properly routed (ribbed side facing the drum) around the motor pulley and the tensioner pulley.

Since you posted no BRAND NAME or MODEL NUMBER, the only advice I can provide you with is to go to repairclinic.com and select "Get Repair Help". Under the Repair Help section, select "Dryer". Under Dryers, there is a link for dryer belt diagrams. There is an extensive list of diagrams to choose from based on manufacturer. If you do not find what you are looking for there, or if you have further questions, please post back with your MODEL NUMBER and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Need instruction for replacing a drive belt on a electric dryer Model No. DE482 Serial # 07


Best to move the dryer to a big room (hopefully cardboard if carpet is not available) as you will need to move around and move IT around some. Once you've got a nice clearance to work in, place the dryer onto its FACE-to clarify, the side that has the door that you open to access clothing articles should be on the ground. You will need to remove the back panel. This is the only way that you can replace the belt as there is a belt tensioner you will need to access also. The belt is long but not very wide or thick. There will only be one way you can fit the belt in place, have it be nice and tight, without having any slack. You might need a friend to hold the belt in place around the large DRUM (the area clothes are placed for drying) while you are routing the belt into place. There are only 3 places that the belt needs to contact: The DRUM, the motor shaft (this is what causes the belt to turn the drum), and the belt tensioner. The drum (with a friend holding the belt in place) and the motor shaft should be a snap, it might take a couple of tries to figure out how to correctly route the belt through the tensioner. When you have routed the belt correctly, the belt will be snug, the tensioner should flex (a little), and should be in the same spot the old one was. There is NO WAY you can install it backwards. Before putting the back panel on, turn the drum by hand a little to make sure you haven't missed or forgotten anything. Not a big job, not time consuming, just be careful you don't take any shortcuts and it should turn out great!

If you need more help, I found parts breakdown prints here:

Hope this helps!

My kenmore dryer won't spin or tumble. The motor runs but no tumbling. I heard a loud bang but didn't know what happened. çould it be the belt?


If the drive motor is still running, the loud bang you heard was either the belt breaking, or slipping off the idler pulley. I will need a model number in order to give you spcific details on how to open the appliance in order to inspect and replace your belt. If you need assistance on how to properly route the dryer belt on to the drive motor shaft and idler pulley, repairclinic.com has dryer belt diagrams listed under their "Special Features" section. Just click on the "Repair Help" link at the top of their web page, to start. You will need either diagrams H, B or K. Its hard to determine which diagram without your model number. Post back with your information and let me know.

The dryer does not turn on. I replaced the start switch and still no action. The dryer has power to the unit, I say that because the dryer light goes on, but I get nothing when I flick the switch. The last...


This is a GAS dryer, correct? That's what the model number you gave me referenced to. There is a thermal fuse on your dryer that you need to check. It should read a short (0 ohms) if good. Unfortunately, you will need to remove the drum to access it. Appliancepartspros.com has an excellent exploded view diagram of your dryer. Just type in the model number you provided and look under the "Drum" section for item 530. The thermal fuse detects an overheat condition and will trip like a fuse. You may have overheated the dryer when you were drying your comforter. When was the last time you had the exhaust ventilation ducting checked? If you can't remember, it may be a good time to inspect the ducting and dryer interior to ensure you have no clogs. Poor airflow is the number one cause of dryer failures. Just something else you may want to consider before replacing any components.

Another thing to check for is a broken belt. Your dryer is equipped with a broken belt interlock switch. If the belt snaps, the interlock stops the drum from turning to prevent the belt from wrapping around the motor shaft (a real bear to remove when this happens). A picture of the interlock can be viewed under the "Backsplash, Blower and Motor Assembly" section as item number 803. If you open the dryer and notice a broken belt, this may be your only problem. A new belt is listed as item 213. The key again, is the comforter. The heavy weight could have taken its toll on an old belt and it finally broke.

If you don't know how to route the dryer belt, repairclinic.com has dryer belt diagrams under their "Repair Help" section.

If my diagnosis is incorrect, please post back and elaborate a bit more on your symptoms.

If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Dryer problem


I could be wrong, but I don't know of a dryer that DOESN'T use a belt to turn the drum. If the motor is turning on, and the drum is not spinning, more than likely your suspicions are correct and the belt is broken. You can find a replacement at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in the model number you have provided and look under the "Tumbler" heading for item number 5 (part #341241). The website also offers some helpful exploded view illustrations to assist in part location and installation.

Repairclinic.com carries the part at a cheaper price (item number 529597). Use the part number provided by the Sears website for your search criteria. Repairclinic also offers dryer belt installation diagrams. Just click on the "Repair Help" link at the top of the page and look under the "Special Features" section on the following page for "Dryer Belt Diagrams". Magic Chef uses diagram F. I hope you find this information helpful. Let me know if you have any questions.
